*Friend Me Friday is a new feature I’m starting on my blog. Every Friday I’m going to share something about myself. These posts most likely won’t be book related. The main reason I started blogging was because I wanted to make friends, but sometimes I worry that my personality isn’t shining through my reviews. I want to share a little bit about myself, so you all can get to know me better. And, hopefully, I’ll get to know you a little better by the comments I hope you leave*
I love Disney.
Seriously, L-O-V-E – love. I saw Frozen this weekend, and it reminded me how much I love Disney movies. Well, not all, of course. But some of my favorite movies are Disney. I don’t mean my favorite animated movies – I mean some of my all-time favorites are Disney.
I was luckily enough to have grown up during the Disney Renaissanse, when Disney released The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. Talk about influential, right? The first three of these movies all have some of my absolute favorite things: musicals, princesses, fairy tales, and happily ever afters. I’ll be honest, The Lion King isn’t a favorite. I mean, I like it, of course, but it’s not a favorite. But Mermaid, Beauty and Aladdin – it’s a very close call on which one is my favorite. But of course, I do have a favorite, and that’s Beauty and the Beast.
I know, shocking coming from a book-obsessed person. Belle is so easy to identify with – she’s kind, and willing to look beyond appearances. She also wants adventure, and knows how amazing stories can be. What’s not to love about Belle, right? And Beast is a very intriguing characters – also his voice is very attractive.
So, what’s your favorite Disney movie? I loved Frozen, but it couldn’t quite break into my top three (Mermaid, Beauty, and Aladdin). If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. The animation is beautiful, the music is great, and the story has so much heart. Also, yay for strong female characters!
